Road past a jail into a buggy jungle. Listened to some story about earth wind fire and water. A little strange unless you are into that kind of thing. Participated in some kind of ceremony then headed for a huge brick oven and was told to get inside! ( think Hansel and Gretel). Both my daughter and I almost had... More

After reading your review, I can perceive you felt like surprised and, to be honest, that makes me feel surprised as well. it seems you feel fooled or that we lied to you. I am sorry, we never do that. There are tons of pictures all around the web (TripAdvisor, Facebook, our site itself, etc.) where our attraction can be... More

Pros: We had a great experience with Frederico and his wife Gabbie. The whole history and just the reminder of finding balance was great. Cons: I kind of get a feeling that something was missing (necklace) we didn't get that. The mosquito you need a bug repellent that guards against ticks etc.. Since you don't feel any bites until you... More

I have done a temazcal before in Tulum, but it was in no way comparable to the intimate, spiritual, personal experience our group had with Petrus and his assistant, Federico. The energy was intense and the location perfect, remote and quiet, where you could hear your own thoughts and connect with nature again. Pack mosquito repellant, and remember this isn't... More

From the friendly greeting Petrus met us with throughout the entire adventure, this was an amazing trip out into the jungle and into my own heart and mind to rest, cleanse, and renew my spirit. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to move beyond the flashy entertainment into what life is really all about.

This world have been a neat experience if not for a couple of things... 1) mosquitoes inside the steam lodge eating you alive for an hour 2) a pool a yellow dirty standing water 'amber cenote' and 3) water is drinken out of questionably clean bowls 4) Petrus is not mayan so the authenticity was a bit lacking. Petrus is... More

Our family was really looking forward to the day as a departure from our other types of beach/water excursions during our cruise. We were hoping to fit this event in during the morning and early afternoon and then be able to hit a beach before our ship departed unfortunately that wasn’t the case. We had a nice experience but one... More

I still cannot believe it took us so long to enjoy this experience. Incredibly good experience, Had never been in a temazcali and Petrus made sure you felt comfortable and guided with enthusiasm and energy. The night dive and swim in the cenote with dim candle light was very liberating. If you really wish to experience nature, traditions and a... More

Petrus guided us through this amazing experience by first giving us context about the Mayan belief systems in terms of their calendar, medicinal practices, and a history of the area. Then we were led through some spiritual and naturalistic rituals that helped open up my mind and my pores. The steam lodge experience was like nothing I've ever done before.... More
